News: Citi Double Cash Got a Sign-Up Bonus for the First Time -

Many of us already love the simplicity of earning cash back with the Citi® Double Cash Card – 18 month BT offer card (Citi a advertising partner). The only downside to the card has been the lack of welcome bonus offer. Not anymore! At least for a limited time.

Citi has pushed a sign-up offer for new applicants for the Citi Double Cash card. The offer is simple: for a limited time, earn $ cash back after spending $ on purchases in the first 6 months of account opening. So, if you were sitting on the fence, this limited time offer may help you to make your decision.

New cardmembers have whole six months to qualify for a bonus offer. So it will be easy to spread an average of $250 per month over this period to earn the bonus.

All other Citi Double Cash card benefits remain the same. The card still has no annual fee and earns 2% on every purchase with unlimited 1% cash back when you buy, plus an additional 1% as you pay for those purchases. There is no limit to how many rewards you can earn on purchases with the card.

While it is possible to make only the minimum payment each month to earn 2% back, we would recommend paying off the card balance in full to avoid interest payments. The card doesn't offer any promo APR on purchases, so any balance you are rolling out from month to month will accrue interest.

Keep in mind that the Citi Double Cash card is a part of the Citi ThankYou program. That means you have more options to redeem your rewards. Redemption options include cash back, Shop with Points, gift cards, and travel. Just visit to see your redemption options.
